Former NUC secretary calls for return of test

The former NUC secretary thinks that the quality of tertiary education is being undermined if the Post UTME remains scrapped.

Okebukola shared his thoughts while giving a keynote speech at an education summit organized by the Education Writers Association of Nigeria (EWAN) in Lagos.

He said, “It is a mistake in the long-term interest of quality of the Nigerian university system to abrogate Post-utme.”

“To shoot for five-star quality from the present one-star, the admission process through the UTME and Post-UTME should move a notch or two higher in stringency."

"Reintroduction of the HSC could pull the magic. On the quality front, enrolling beyond programme carrying capacity is recipe for poor quality products. NUC should continue to apply sanctions to breaches of carrying capacity.”

The academician was joined by other stakeholders who also feel that the quality of education delivered in the country can be helped through the restoration of the UTME test.
